The coronovirus pandemic has filled many of us with fear and uncertainty. But one thing we know for sure: God is still on the throne! We thought we would share this beautiful prayer our campus pastor in Ann Arbor wrote.
“Father, worry and fear are not of Your heart. 1 John 4 reminds us that perfect love casts out all fear, and we pray Your perfect love upon the hearts of all those who are burdened with fear of this virus. Lord, we know with no doubt that You are bigger than the threat of anything, especially illnesses. Please comfort those who are living in fear, please free them from the bondage that anxiety creates within. Remind them that You are still on the Throne and that You are still in control. Fully rain down the serenity that comes only from the Prince of Peace. Help those who are living in unease to trust You in this time so that in times to come we may rest assured that You will be faithful to be with us until the end of age. We rest at the Throne of the Almighty such fears and cast them upon You (1 Peter 5:7), for Your burden is Light and Your Yoke is easy (Matthew 11:30), and we know You cover us with Your wings (Psalm 91:4). We pray all of this in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
God bless you with His everlasting love.
